    Cards sometimes go bad. Try a different card.

    You said that you repaired it through the phone's repair option. If that's true then the phone is recognizing the card, in which case you should also try formatting it from the same screen within the phone so it's formatted correctly. If you wanna do it from your PC I believe it's FAT32. If that doesn't work then I'd assume you either have a faulty card or the phone has a faulty card reader.

    Default 2gb memory card not being recognised in my 9900!!

    Shifty, the OP said that he purchased another card and that didn't work either. So it seems more likely, as you stated, that the reader is faulty.

    Red. Try pushing a very small slither of card (cut from a business card) into the card reader slot over the top of the SD card so it pushes the SD card down onto the reader contacts. This has worked for others in your situation. It's worth a shot, nothing to lose.

    I had a similar peoblem with my 2 gb card, I pulled the battery, removed the card, and put it back in with some force, then it was magically recognized.

    You could repair it for relatively cheap, less than 70, but if you only need 2 gb, there is 6 gb of internal memory. Why not just use that and save the expense?
